DESCENDANTS OF PARENTS OF JOSEPH GRAVES OF TN WHO MARRIED AMANDA VAUGHN

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

‑‑‑‑‑‑ Graves (1) may have been born about 1800.  He married ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  They lived in TN.  It is known that they had at least two sons because son Joseph had a niece with the Graves surname.  Although their son Joseph has not been found in the 1850 census and granddaughter Hannah has not been found in the 1860 census, it is possible that a thorough house-by-house search of the records for Rutherford and Williamson counties might succeed.
